Field Layout Option 3

•Zero capital cost
•No safety fence
•Red zones for starting, arming, stopping, disarming, and taxiing.
•Spread out existing pilot stations to the 25’ line (5 shown here for reference and comparison with Option 2)
•Basic concept would have fixed wing piloting from the corner pilot stations.
•Heli pilots in designated Blue area (last stall). Optional pilot station shown for clarity, at the same 25’ off sun shade distance
•Discussion: Where would heli’s be allowed to start? Either in normal Red Zone, or in heli-only red zone defined by a portable plane stand? In other words, no starting under the sun shade? (think consistency)
•Fixed wing flying on N-S vs E-W, depending on prevailing winds. Heli’s go on opposite active runway.
•Option: Handicapped pilots can use the non-active end stall and heli-end-pilot-station?
